Fun Home

Jan 24 - Feb 16 at Spencer Theatre

Fun Home is the winner of five 2015 Tony Awards including Best Musical. Inspired by Alison Bechdel’s best-selling graphic novel, this relatable and moving story has Alison reliving her upbringing with her brilliant and volatile father—a man whose own secrets defined the family—while on her own journey of self-discovery. It’s a musical detective story filled with memorable songs marked by honesty and humor. The New York Times says Fun Home is a “heart-gripping and cathartic” musical that delivers a deeply satisfying emotional wallop.

Fun Home runs approximately 98 minutes and is performed with no intermission.

Recommended for ages 12 and up.

We need your support

COVID-19 threatens our city’s vibrancy just as it threatens our community’s well-being. KCRep made the difficult decision to cancel three spring productions and our annual fundraising gala. Although this was the right thing to do, it is no less heartbreaking for our theatre. The loss of ticket and fundraising income for KCRep is close to $2 million. In order for KCRep to continue to be a source of inspiration, curiosity, and community both now and in the future, we need your help today. An avid KCRep supporter is standing by, ready to match every gift toward KCRep’s recovery dollar-for-dollar up to $10,000. Donate by June 12th to double your impact.
